CME EVENT:  Intimacy and Cosmopolitanism: Space, Difference and Media

March 29, 2018

Convenor: Dr Alex Lambert

This symposium aims to explore contemporary social dynamics through two central concepts: intimacy and cosmopolitanism. The age of globalisation, migration and online social networking would seem to offer new cosmopolitan formations. However, it is increasingly apparent that many people prefer to strengthen their intimate connections rather than deeply engage with socio-cultural difference. Moreover, media systems such as filter bubble algorithms often enclose people within intimate groups while foreclosing meaningful encounters with difference. Difference is often proximate but uncommunicative. 


This symposium explores these issues through a variety of speakers from different disciplinary perspectives, including media studies, philosophy, gender studies, post-colonial critique, and the creative industries.
